Feb. 15, 2014
BOSTON, Mass. - The No. 20 George Washington men's squash team won the top two matches on the ladder but fell to No. 17 Middlebury, 7-2, on Saturday afternoon in the semifinals of the Summers Cup (C-Division) at the College Squash Association (CSA) Team Nationals at Harvard University's Murr Center.

The Bogota, Colombia, native exceeded the allotted stoppage time for an injury and as a result forfeited the set. Despite the setback, de Frutos won the next two sets before prevailing in five over Parker Hurst, def., 11-5, 11-8, 9-11, 13-11.
Valderrama rallied from a 2-0 hole to defeat Andrew Jung in five sets at No. 2, 7-11, 9-11, 11-6, 11-5, 13-11 to clinch the Colonials' first victory of the day.
Sophomore James Reiss was pushed to five sets after holding a 2-1 advantage but ultimately fell to Andrew Cadreibred at No. 3, 12-10, 6-11, 11-6, 5-11, 1-11.
The Colonials will face No. 18 Wesleyan in the Consolation Finals on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. at Northeastern University's Badger & Rosen Squashbusters Center.
